The Age of Civilizational Self-Loathing

This week Mark swung by The Seth & Chris Show for a wide-ranging discussion with Chris Buskirk on the state of America and the world. Among the big issues they chewed over was education:

'With a lot of the malign social trends in the world—when you talk about, you know, the socialization of healthcare or whatever—Canada and Western Europe are often years ahead of where the United States is. In the corruption of education, America is actually the pacesetter..'

We are doing an an "affirmatively bad job" of educating the next generation, Steyn said, because it's not just that our children are ignorant of the glories of Western civilization, it's that we are actually teaching them to hate those things.

Steyn's Song of the Week

A Winter's Tale

Now that Punxsutawny Phil has decreed another six weeks of winter, Mark is joined for a wintry love song by one of the most successful lyricists of our time, the multi-Oscar and -Tony winner Tim Rice, to talk about one of Tim's comparatively few hits not to come from a film or show score.

But she has always loved Édith Piaf, and Mark is thrilled to present not only her version of "La Vie en rose" but also another Piaf success - "Sous le ciel de Paris":

Mark Returns to the Deranged Dominion!

On Saturday February 25th Mark returns to Canada's biggest political beano, the annual Manning Conference in Ottawa. Much has changed since he last spoke there three years ago: Back then the Conservatives were in government; now they're leaderless and on the outside looking in, as the boy-king Justin builds the new Trudeaupia. Mark will be surveying the changed political scene in North America and round the world, and concluding the conference with a live performance from the stage of the ...

A Serial Transgressor of Scientific Norms

In the glacial progress of the defamation suit against me by Big Climate huckster Michael E Mann, there has been a most interesting development: a fellow scientist, Dr Judith Curry, has now filed an amicus brief against Mann. As the inventor of the global-warming "hockey stick" promoted worldwide by the UN and governments from Canada to New Zealand, Mann is undoubtedly one of the most famous climate "scientists" on the planet. But, if you want to know what a real scientist thinks of him, then ...
